He was carrying weight — both in a slang and a literal sense.
Christopher Mitchell and Keithian Roberts were pulled over Friday afternoon in Volusia County, Florida, after police officers said they noticed that Mitchell wasn't wearing his seatbelt, WFTV-TV reported.
Mitchell, who weighs in at 450 pounds, reportedly told police he was too big to wear a seat belt, but was "acting nervously" during the encounter, so the cops brought out a drug-sniffing dog.
Police say they found cocaine, a handgun and $7,000 rolled up in a tube sock in the car — and they also found 23 grams of marijuana hidden in the folds of Mitchell's belly fat.
Roberts was charged with cocaine possession, and Mitchell was charged with possession of marijuana and cited for not wearing his seatbelt.
The bust was part of a broad crime-suppression drive known as Operation Summer Shield, police told News 13 Orlando.
Mitchell goes by the aliases "Fat Boy" and "Biggie," the New York Daily News reported, for seemingly obvious reasons.
